It would be so predictable to write about last night’s presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Depending on whom you ask it was a debate that they both won, both lost and both tied. Also, they both crushed each other and mopped the floor with. So let me write about a different kind of a chair; the one I have painted and the one I plan to sell soon. (What a terrible segue!)
The other day on finding out that I had run out of cardboard boxes after running out of canvases to paint, my eyes settled on two deck chairs. Their backrest and seat are tough canvas and ideal material to paint on. That led me to try and create perhaps one of a kind art piece. There is nothing even remotely original about that because such art pieces have been produced for millennia and that too by genuine artists and not a hack like me. But then if Trump can aspire to be president, I can aspire to be an artist. There, I connected it.
The chair above is still a work in progress but I present it because the broad style is already in place. I am still touching things up and the final product may look different in terms of the colors on the frame of the chair as well as the seat. I intend displaying this at a local gallery with the clear intention to sell it for a decent price…or for any price at all.
